Tried and Tested

That’s the dream isn’t it? To have the years of hard work, the ruined relationships, the neglected chores and the minimum wage job finally seem worth it. To see your name on a shiny book cover, sitting on a shiny shelf in your local bookstore. To prove to yourself that you can do it. Well, you can do it (hopefully). If you’ve got a manuscript ready to go and want to go the route of traditional publishing, this is the page for you.

Here you will find a directory of all the Australian publishers who are known to publish AusQueerYA, advice on how to get your manuscript seen by those publishers, how to navigate contracts, fame and fortune and what to do after a publisher says yes to the dress.

This page is a work in progress. If you know a guy who knows a guy who knows about publishing, we welcome your contributions.
